PCs 'still being used to store videos and photos' 2 June 2011 15:22:26
Data, videos and photos are still being stored on personal computers (PCs) by a number of people in the UK, an expert has suggested, which may interest those who use devices such as USB memory sticks.
Despite the rise of smartphones and tablet devices, Roddy McLean, marketing director at Crucial.com, noted that these are not about to replace PCs for good just yet.
Instead, he said that they will "actually serve to complement them".
Mr McLean remarked: "Most people with tablets and smartphones use their computer as the hub in their computer ecosystem - a place to store photos, videos, data, et cetera."
New technologies like smartphones will be able to co-exist with more traditional PC devices, the expert went on to say.
Crucial.com survey results recently suggested that as many as 25 per cent of respondents reported that traditional desktop computers are still possessed by them most commonly.
